If You Suffer from Asthma or Allergies, Personalized Immunotherapy Might be Right for You

Leading cause of chronic illness in the country, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. Those illnesses result in lost school and work days. Though outdoor allergies to pollen do prohibit outside activities, half of all allergies are indoors, such as dust mites, mold and animal dander.

For those who suffer, allergy and asthma symptoms can be a daily battle. Symptoms can range from mere annoyances like a runny or stuffy nose, to more serious ones like trouble breathing, recurrent sinus and respiratory infections, or even breaking out into hives. Those symptoms, caused by everything from dust mites to pollen to mold to pet dander, can make life miserable if left untreated. Often, trying to coordinate over-the-counter allergy medications can be overwhelming and expensive with many unwelcome side effects like drowsiness, dry mouth, high blood pressure, constipation or nervousness.

Establishing a relationship with an allergist is the best way to deal with these symptoms and to get back to enjoying life. Symptoms can often masquerade as colds, so even if you don’t think you suffer from allergies, seeing an allergist is the best way to find out for sure so you can get back to enjoying the best parts of the season.
